General: It is said that Roman soldiers wore an engraved Tiger’s Eye to protect them in battle, and it is still used as a protective stone. Combining earth energy with the energies of the sun, it creates a high vibrational state that draws spiritual energies to earth. Tiger’s Eye heals mental disease and personality disorders; deals with issues of self-worth, self-criticism, and blocked creativity; and is excellent for people who are spaced out or uncommitted. Facilitating assertion and anchoring change into the physical body, this stone assists in recognising talents and faults to be overcome and supports an addictive personality in making changes. Facilitating correct use of power, Tiger’s Eye supports integrity and assists in accomplishing goals. It differentiates between wishful thinking and what one really needs, and assists in recognising other people’s needs.
